Sitting at the point where three mountain rivers meet, the hill station of Munnar has become known as a tea-growing center in the south of the country.
Your list of things to see and do now includes D Trek Munnar Adventure, Echo Point, Mattupetty Dam, and other attractions. Do your shopping at Kalari Kshethra and Mistletoe art Gallery. Step out of the city life by going to Rajamalai (Eravikulam) National Park and Green Park Ayurvedic & Spices Plantation. Venture out of the city with trips to Meesapulimala (in Idukki) and Thekkady (Our Lady of Lourde's Roman Catholic Latin Church, Periyar Tiger Reserve, & more). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Tea Museum, admire the sheer force of Lakkam Waterfalls, take in the awesome beauty at Anamudi Peak, and look for gifts at Tata Tea Outlet.

The first Indian city to achieve a 100 percent literacy rate among its citizens, Kottayam has as much of a reputation for its educational standards as for its massive rubber industry.

Here are some ideas for day two: explore the galleries of Mozart Art Gallery, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kumarakom Beach, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Kottayam Cheriapally, and finally make a trip to Thirunakkara Mahadeva Temple.
